've heard this kind of talk before. but america is a different country. voters are rejecting 40 years of gop scare tactics. voters are supporting the obama administration's move to end severe mandatory sentences for low-level nonviolent drug offenders. of course, over at fox, they don't get it. >> they're not pot smokers. they're not pill poppers. >> wait a second. 50%. but the thing, what if the kid has a drug problem? >> then you get the kid to rehab or lock him in the basement or do what you have to do. that's what parents do. >> who thinks that one of these elderly people who have been in prison for a mandatory minimum sentence, that they're going to get out and they're not going to be on public assistance? of course they are. >> so we should keep people in prison to keep them off public aid? we should just lock up people with drug problems. this kind of demonizing and fearmongering is really nothing new for the right. it goes all the way back to president richard nixon. >> america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse. in order to fight and defeat this enemy, it i
defined by what you lost, by what you can't do. you've inspired america with what you can do. maybe you lost your sight but you can still see the truth that our disabled veterans make extraordinary contributions to our country every single day. maybe you lost an arm but you still have the strength to pick up a friend or neighbor in need. maybe you lost a leg but you still stand tall for the values and freedoms that make america the greatest nation on earth. [ applause ] i think of the wounded warrior who spoke for so many of you when he said your life will never be the same but that doesn't mean you can't go on to do amaze things with the second thing you've given. i think of wounded veterans across america and how they used that second chance. volunteering in communities. building home, being a mentor to local kids, showing up after tornadoes, after hurricane sandy to help folks rebuild. i think of the wounded warriors who reached out to the survivors of the boston marathon bombing with a simple message, we stand with you. i think of all the inspiring wounded warriors that michelle and
supports the nsa surveillance program. he says the program itself works in protecting america from terrorism and has what he calls a 99.99% batting average in being compliant. >> this whole tone of snooping and spying that we use i think it's horrible, it's a distortion and a smear and a slander of good patriotic americans. >> reporter: senator rand paul, by the way, says the constitutionality of the nsa program must be evaluated. steve? >> thank you very much. peter king went directly at rand paul, said basically he's lying about the program. and he's just breathless in defending it as michael hayden. where is the president? he doesn't go to pat for this. he's analyzing this and it's his program. from michael hayden he says "the washington post" publishes this story. look at the numbers. there's been 115 incidents, incorrectly entered. mistakes made. none intentional. so that's out of 61 million inquiries a compliance rate of 99.998. look beyond the numbers and the headlines. >> right. michael hayden has and i temple in the "usa today" today where he talks in an op-ed just trust u
of violence in america calls each of us to collectively resist all forms of violence in our society. in particular, black on black violence that disproportionately affects every facet of black life in america. we must learn to live together in peace or we will most surely die apart in our own neglect. on the other hand, reaction on twitter. allen west tweeted, who will the president of the united states identify with this time? so we're starting to see more reaction on both sides of the aisle. ainsley, steve, brian, back to you. >> about time. thank you very much. >>> let's talk about the nsa. another revelation came out yesterday afternoon and it turns out that they have -- they have released additional information over the past -- since 2008 on things that have gone wrong in the nsa collection. for example, there was a redacted page which is unredacted and classified yesterday that revealed that we have collected 56,000 wholly domestic communications each year. so this is done, nothing was necessarily done with it. nothing was exposed by it. but these were collected and the fisa c
which america could take military action in syria this as calls grow to forcefully respond to evidence that the assad regime killed hundreds of its own people with chemical weapons. >>> the wildfire the size of the chicago raging in and around a cherished american landmark, the yosemite national park but the rim fire poses a threat to hundred of thousands of residents in san francisco and it is a 150 miles away. we'll tell you about that. >>> sentencing for the army major convicted of killing 13 people in the fort hood shooting massacre the will nidal hasan get life in prison or the death penalty. but first right now, brand new stories. >> inyou had concluding this one, jon, busted for buging? a new report says the nsa cracked videoconferencing system at u.n. and apparently that is not all. >>> plus jody arias is back before a judge. today we could learn when the retrial of the convicted killer's penalty phase will begin. >>> and there is talk about making an entrance? bandits storm a pawn shop. why what they got away with has police very worried. it is all happing right now. jon: good
'"i've been an america since birth." he refused to speculate whether or not he'd be eligible to run for president. he said he was going to leave that to legal scholars. >> you know, it's interesting that ted cruz, this has come to sort of bite him back, all of the worry about birth certificates and so forth have come back to bite ted cruz. that the reason being that basically that all this noise had been made over barack obama's birth certificate, and so now ted cruz is forced to litigate this, in my mind, ludicrous absurd issue precisely because there was such a long sustained movement on the american right to question barack obama's birth certificate and whether he, himself, could actually be president of the united states. >> reporter: a couple things on that. cruz was asked, also, if there are any similarities between his situation and questions about his citizenship, and the questions that president obama faced that eventually led him to release his long-form birth certificate. cruz also refused to speculate on that. so he wouldn't, you know, distance himself from it. he also w
alone america. obama, call him a liberal or what you want but he was not on the fringe. he was down the plate of the democratic party. you have guys who are both not ready and also taking really wacko bird positions to -- >> at the same time, a lot of that has to do with the fact where you live and what your views are. there are a lot of people in middle america that don't see ted cruz or rand paul or marco rubio out of the mainstream. a lot of people. as many people don't think they are, as people don't think barack obama is. i mean barack obama -- >> they're not even in the mainstream of the republican party. barack obama was in the mainstream of the democratic party. he may have been inexperienced. >> when these guys came in 2010 they are in the mainstream of the republican party. look at the fact that in 2010 it's not like there were a couple people that snuck. >> office. republicans won the largest legislative landslide on the state and national level i think probably in the 20 -- in a century. it was a remarkable victory for them. the problem that some of them don't understand
, but a lot would have to go to private institutions, to go to bank of america who could jack up the price or interests a lot higher than government, that creates another problem. neil: you do see that -- you keep feeding the beast. >> you put a ceiling on what government can give you is fine, but have to go to private lenders. i would have had to go to bank of america for example or whatever it was. you know because i'm ancient, they did not exist. neil: then i am -- scotty, we have to do something we can recognize risk of thoseho need the aid not getting aid, but bigger risk no one gets aid because it will be priced out. >> not like the republicans are against education, but what is the real hype crease, barack obama is champions students supposedly, he will make $50 billion in profit off of the interest from the loans, ise doing this in best interest of students, if we gave government grants to make it equal to have status quo is fine, but this administration is using it to make a profit to make up for other losses. >> you are suggests that other presidents did not have pehl grants orel
wrote about in the "the washington post" this week. america's chronic overreaction to terrorism, we have created an economy of fear, an industry of fear, a national psychology of fear. al qaeda could have never achieved that on its own. we have inflicted it on ourselves. >> fundamentally, there are two sets of questions that apply in the war against terrorism. the one set of questions deals with the where's it going to happen, what's going to happen, and when is it going to happen. the other set of questions deals with what is it that our enemy, the terrorists, are trying to achieve? what are they trying to induce us to do? take a look at what's been happening over the past week. with a conference call, al qaeda has effectively shut down 20 u.s. embassies around north africa and the middle east. we just had the president of yemen here for a meeting with president obama. he goes back feeling wonderful about his new relationship with the president. next thing the president does is says in effect, sorry, but we don't trust you yemenis to protect your embassies so in effect we shut down our
to the british government that we had this material already in america and glenn greenwald has it in brazil, it seemed to me to misunderstand the nature of digital communications to be destroying a hard disk in london. but as they were adamant they would go to law, i thought it was simpler to get on with the reporting from america and destroy the copies that we had in london. >> which means agents from the uk government came to "the guardian's" offices with, what, sledgehammers? with -- i mean, honestly, how did it -- like, physically, how did it go down? there was a hard drive on the floor and you watched as agents of the government battered the thing? >> well, this might seem a nice distinction, but i was not going to hand these, this material to the government in any way. so i said we would destroy it, but if they wanted to supervise the destruction, when they could. so they sent along two technicians from gchq. that's the equivalent of the nsa. and they advised on what you have to do in order to destroy a machine so that it is of no use to anybody else and nothing can be retrieved from
>>> good morning, america. this morning, breaking news. a massive multistate manhunt is over. >> she's coming home. >> hannah anderson rescued, her alleged kidnapper shot dead in the idaho wilderness by an elite fbi hostage rescuer. this morning, how the fbi got their man, and how hannah is doing now. >>> in reverse. gas prices plunging as the peak summer driving season comes to an end. plus, why we are likely to pay even less at the pump next year. >>> and the mystery and intrigue surrounding the most famous painting on earth. the high-tech researchers crawling into a crypt, perhaps on the verge of identifying the real mona lisa. >>> and are you smarter than an eighth grader from the year 1912? this is a recently rediscovered exam from more than 100 years ago. it's incredibly hard. >> who invented the cotton gin? >> man. >> no, i just -- >>> i have this exam right here. it's incredibly embarrassing. describe the battle of quebec. who first discovered the following places, florida, pacific ocean, the mississippi river, the st. lawrence river? >> you don't know who won the bat
the safest big city in america. and i'm happy to say we are on pace for another record low of shootings and homicides this year. because our police officers follow the law and follow the crime. they fight crime wherever crime is occurring and at the don't worry if their work doesn't match-up to a census chart. >> governor, this is a big part of his legacy. he doesn't want to leave office with the record he has intact and all of a sudden be remembered as the guy implementing stop and frisk on an unconstitutional basis >> he should be remembered to the man who helped reduce violent crime to historic levels in this city. we have an seen a decline across the country but haven't seen anything like the dramatic decline in new york city. you can trash new york city where we will very policing including stop and frisk with chicago where the rate of minority murders in that city is just unacceptable. share lynn is also right when you look at the sticks. look at the statistics of stop and frisk. it reflects basicallity percentages of those hose ultimately are arrested and charged with crimes in t
of the united states of america siding with the generals. we have no credibility. we do have influence, but when you don't use that influence, then you do not have that influence. we could be cutting off the aid, the spare parts and maintenance of these military equipment that we've given the egyptians is important to their capabilities. >> wait -- >> tourism, economic assistance, business, the imf loan. there are many areas where we could exercise influence over the generals and we're not doing any of it and we're not sticking with our values. >> and yet when you argued earlier, trying as you say to give the military leaders a chance, you argued that to cut off u.s. aid to egypt might harm israel. others also add that once you cut off aid, you've lost any kind of leverage. there is nothing after you've cut u.s. aid. >> well, again, we thought that at that particular time that it was not the right thing to do because we wanted to give them an opportunity to get back on the path to democracy. obviously that's not the case. as i say, our interests, our values, there are consequences of failure --
, united states of america. what was the first card you took, craig? can you flip it over and show the camera? seven. >> why do i have a feeling -- >> stop. that was amazing. >> that's kind of amazing. >> 4. >> 74. >> we have to move it along. >> i don't want to play. >> they match the serial number of craig's bill. hold the bill tight. hold it tight. stay standing, everyone. stay standing. that's a special bill. made a sponge disappear, you saw it, do you feel it? look inside your bill. >> oh, my goodness. >> no. >> you have seconds. >> seconds. really quick. look at my eyes. last time i read your -- guessed your favorite restaurant, dylan, can you think of a dish in your mind? any dish? >> a favorite or any dish? >> any dish. >> got one in your mind? >> yes. >> so before i came to the "today" show i had a vision and it was a vision of food. i always think about food. and i went to a restaurant near me and i picked up one dish. i have a question for you. what's the dish in your mind right now? >> i can say it? >> yes. >> a lobster roll. >> i went to luke's lobster and i actually p

of the many issues america disagrees with russia about. i'm thinking about other serious issues like syria, iran, et cetera. >>peter: when you think back on history, is this the way we used to treat russia, even in the cold war? you go back 53 years ago to the famous kitchen debate between khruschev and vice president richard nixon and that was broadcast both in the united states and in the soviet union then, and that was a robust debate about their disagreements in terms of foreign policy, and it got very, very personal. so some people are asking this morning, why isn't the president putting it to putin in september in russia when he has a chance to go face-to-face, head to head. >>steve: the whole u.s.-russia reset has been a disaster every since hillary clinton famously handed her russian counterpart that reset button and she thought it said reset translated into russian. as it turned out it said overcharged. oops-a-daisy. it certainly marks a low point for this president in our relations r russia. once upon a time we were a superpower. we would kick russia's butt. but now in this situa
passed thus far in 2005, a trade agreement with central america, the first energy policy bill in decade, a multi-year highway bill. it was the last time the president and the congress had a multi-year funding bill. bill: you are argue he was active and relevant. >> you mentioned the approval rating. he's down 5 point in a month from july it was 47 percent. now it's up to 52. that's a jump of 5 points. >> president bush's approval ratings were low because of an unpopular war in iraq. president obama is supposedly winning the war against terrorism and the economy is recover and he's in his second term and there ought to be a brief moment of below but there hasn't been. bill: if that is the case, what is the calculation between joe biden and hillary clinton? dose wait to see what she does or does he get in regardless? >> i think he gets in regardless. there is nothing to be lost by anybody. o'malley, the governor of maryland. there is no disadvantage to them going to iowa in this early stage and start to poke around and build relationships and flesh out their messages. there they don't kno
the case for putting america's house in order" and in washington columnist for bloomberg view al hunt. start off talking about a-rod, look tat the front page of "the new york post," a-roid rage has the last laugh in the sixth inning. >> i will say i'm a red sox fan, interest of full disclosure. these are the things that can turn a season around. when the red sox won the series in '04 that spat with jason vary tech and a-rod where vary tech took it to a-rod when he seemed bigger than the game turned his season around. if he gets to play out the rest of the year it's big for the yankees. >> also something wrong with the rules of baseball. after the pitcher goes after a-rod, the idea he's not tossed out of the game, both teams equally warned, that's outrageous. girardi was right, should not have been thrown out of the game. the pitcher should have been thrown out of the game. >> i thought it was just pitching him inside. >> don't you love that? >> what are you talking about? >> crowding the plate and he clearly threw a few balls and a-rod stepped into one. >> no funny business there. >>
in a row is pretty suspicious and bank of america says they'll try to -- >> common practice, it happens constantly with young kids in that -- >> sad story. >> drinking red bull and coffee. >> yeah. >> that's just the culture? >> absolutely. >> but let's not in any way start to assign a bank or anybody else -- >> no, no, not a bank, just the culture of investment banking. >> and it's the culture of the competitive nature for college kids now trying to get jobs. it is, you bust a gut to try to get these, even unpaid internships, maybe not pulling three all-nighters. >>> the "new york daily news." dr. oz came to the rescue of a 23-year-old british tourist. the tourist was sitting near a fountain outside of this building, rockefeller center, when a taxi cab jumped the curb, trying to run down a bicyclist in what witnesses say was a foot of road rage. dr. oz heard the crash and went to the scene to assist the victim along with other first responders. reports say she lost part of one leg. apparently there was a plumber there, he used his belt as a tourniquet and that helped save her life. >>
.q. decades of psycho metric testing has indicated that in at least in america, you have jews with the highest average i.q., followed by east asians. these are real differences, they're not going to go away tomorrow. >> that is the guy who jim demint hired as senior policy analyst to crunch the numbers on immigration reform. lo and behold, the heritage study finds when a guy like that crunches the numbers. it turns out that immigrants are terrible. they're so dumb and they can never get smarter. not without better breeding at least. that was really embarrassing for the heritage foundation. it's also embarrassing they never fired that guy once everybody reported what his background was when the report came out and freaked everybody out. after his background came out, they never explained why they hired him in the first place. the heritage foundation is still sights the report as if it's good science. here's the thing about the heritage foundation. jim demint is the president of the group now, the head of research at the heritage foundation is this guy. do you remember him? do you remember david
that the election for that senate seat is going to be held in october? on a wednesday. here in america, we generally hold big statewide, big federal elections on tuesdays in november. wednesday in october? and, in fact, new jersey already has a previously scheduled big statewide election on a tuesday this november. a big normal election on a big normal election day. tuesday in november. but the u.s. senate seat election between cory booker and the former mayor is going to be held on a different day, less than three weeks before the normal election day on a wednesday. why? because on that tuesday in november, real election day, new jersey governors chris christie, is on the ballot. he's running for re-election as new jersey governor, and as he is making the state of new jersey spend an extra $12 million to hold a whole separate election for this senate seat, less than three weeks before there's going to be an election anyway. amazing. presumably he is going this because he does not want to be on the same ballot with a democrat as popular as cory booker. there is basically no one in politics who think
because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single country that's causing problems right now, whether it's iran, whether it's syria, of course we've got the snowden issue now, it is russia at the center of it and russia has now made fools of two presidents, nicole, yours and barack obama. >> right. i mean, look, he's a shirtless thug and he's someone who really has made a fool of this president, who i think earnestly intended to re-set relations but naively thought that was possible. >> can i say, donny twitched when -- >> shirtless? >> look -- >> when the phrase shirtless thug, because -- no, no, willie. >> he did. >> when you said shirtless thug, it was as if donny was walking down like the streets, the mean streets of southampton. >> shirtless. >> that shirtless thug, he said he was go
the way to have action. he didn't need to undermine america's national security to pursue whatever his conscious led him to do. there's a process by which he could have pursued his interest in a way that doesn't undermine the national security of the united states. when we have our sources and methods known by our enemies, we undermine the national security of the united states. i would say it's easy since we have not, thank god, had an attack on american soil since september 11th, to minimize the threat, but it's real. and the terrorists only have to get lucky once. we have to do it right 100% of the time. that's a tough standard. >> and a key member of your committee from california who's chair of the subcommittee dealing with russia seems to have sympathy with edward snowden. this is him yesterday on c-span. >> i thought he was being loyal to the rest of us by letting the american people know that the government was getting out of hand. accepting him for asylum, i think, was not as hostile an act as its being portrayed. >> do you agree with those views on edward snowden and russia?
disagree with his lifestyle choices, he's out there protecting the united states of america, he deserves your respect. >> and you know what, guts. that's what this all boils down to. what we're all talking about. it's just speaking out. mike allen, mike, we started with you. i was just talking about since 2006, republicans have grimaced and hidden in the corners and they've -- oh, what are we going to do about -- these people on talk radio, these people on cable news that are saying these things that are driving off the very swing voters we need to get elected to the white house again. >> yeah. >> guts. they don't have guts to speak out against the treex emmists. mitt romney never had the guts to speak out against the most extreme elements in his party. and he lost in part because he followed extremists down a rabbit hole in iowa, in a caucus process, on immigration, and he got slaughtered among hispanic-americans because of it and he got beaten in other areas too because he never spoke out and had that famous bill clinton sister soldier moment that by the way conservatives cheered when
cities in america. you may think you live there already. we'll tell you the truth from a new survey. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east and 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." the manhunt is over but a big mystery remains which led police from southern california to the wilderness of idaho. the abductor, james dimaggio, is dead and hannah anderson is alive and well. joe, what do you know? anything new that you're learning? >> reporter: alex, this morning we did get some new information about how they were able to locate dimaggio and hannah anderson. teams were up in helicopters searching the wilderness for any sign of them. near a campsite near morehead lake, they spotted james dimaggio and hannah anderson. they ended up landing and fbi apths hiked 2 1/2 hours before they were able to get to that campsite before there was a confrontation with dimaggio. all we know is that in the end an fbi agent shot and killed dimaggio. we're told a special fbi team is coming out to idaho to conduct an investigation on that shooting. they will be interviewing
in the best town of america? you're right if you call sharon, massachusetts your home. that's according to to "money" magazine who just released it's list of the best places to live in the united states. let's start with the best. sharon, massachusetts, why is it the best? >> well, you'll see this throughout the towns that we have picked, economic strength, it's centrally located between providence, boston and route 128. so if that helped insulate it from the recession, it's unemployment rate is less than 5% which is 2.5 percentage rates below the national average right now. it's also one of the most diverse towns that we see, both economically, racially and ethnically. it has one of the biggest mosques in the new england area. and it is it used to be a summer resort and 40% of the place is open land. >> okay. so to be fair for all the cities in your choices, you also listed the downside of each town. what is the downside of sharon? >> like any place in the northeast, it's more expensive than the average town, but it's not quite as expensive as some of the areas around -- closer to bost
for america, pete. first of all, give us a sense, the veterans are sitting there, disabled vets, listening to president obama basically point his finger at congress saying it's their fault that the sequester is in place. your benefits are safe now because of me. but next year maybe not. what was the response? >> well, i wasn't in the room. but they're effectively listening to a veiled threat. this is a president saying hey, your benefits are good to go now, but going forward, they might noting because of congress. and to me, you got to see through -- here is the guy who is supposed to be leading our nation and he's standing up not leading, but demagoguing and anyone who has followed this known it's been the president's insistence on raising taxes, unwilling to do the heavy lifting of getting rid of things raising taxes. >> eric: the president quotes wreckless across the board budget cuts. reckless? we're $16 trillion in debt. >> the reckless in the nature for the military in that hey, we're cutting critical programs, maintenance and training. there is definitely a reckless nature when itle
